Rootz of Music, Inc. is proud to present a historical musical extravaganza that chronicles the development of popular songs that were the foundation in both Jamaica and the Americas starting from the mid 1940’s to present time. Led by world class Jamaican guitarist, composer, arranger, music instructor Eugene Grey, the show will also feature singers and dancers performing the music of the popular artists of each era such as Louis Jordan, Harry Belafonte, Byron Lee and the Dragoneers . This innovative and entertaining musical presentation is staged to demonstrate the interconnectivity of American and Jamaican music and how two separate elements of two genres merged and became what is now known as Reggae and Hip Hop. #americanrootsofjamaicanmusic
